This verse is but one of Paul’s numerous greetings to the different churches. I love Paul’s greetings because they represent the spirit of God’s people; it is always full of hope, happiness and love. Paul always does his best to remind us how much Jesus Christ loves us and who we really are in Christ. Every time he writes to people, he would always pronounce a greeting of grace.
May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace (Romans 1:7).
In these stressful times, life will always show us how much we have failed and how much we have fallen short of God’s glory; but we should also be reminded of the higher truth that Jesus Christ has already died for us and we have nothing else to expect in our future but Salvation. Let us keep our tongues from evil and build each other up by reminding ourselves of the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ!
